Questions?

Do you have a Before and After School provision?

Yes. Before School Club will be from 7.30am until the start of the school day. After School provision will run from the end of the school day until 5.50pm. You will need to book this service and there is a charge of £5 for the Before School and £8 for After School. 

Can we use the school car park when dropping off and picking up our children from school?

Unfortunately the car park is for use by staff and visitors only. However if you have a valid Blue Badge, please feel free to park in one of the allocated spaces and display your badge in the front window. We ask all parents/carers to drive and park with due care and caution when dropping off and picking up children.

Does the school day start at 8.40 or 8.50am?

The doors open at 8.40am to allow the children time to settle. Registration is taken at 8.50am. Anyone arriving after this time will receive a late mark. Please note that you are responsible for your children until 8.40am unless they are attending Breakfast Club.

Can my child bring a packed lunch to school?

Yes, but we would really like to encourage you to take up the Free School Meals service for all children in Reception and Years 1 and 2. For the older children (Years 3-6) hot dinners are available for £2.20 a day. We have our own kitchen and employ our own chef and assistant cook who supply high quality, nutritious meals, cooked on site and using quality ingredients. You have a few choices each day so you can select meals which your child will like.
